Research shows that you can be both fast and comfortable on your high-performance road bike—hence, the growing popularity of the endurance road bike. Kestrel’s contribution to this category is the ultra-sleek, RT 1100. Over the years it has been fine tuned and race proven through European Protour sponsorship: Tour De France winner Carlos Sastre, Denny Menchov, and Juan Jose Cobo have all raced it and Juan Jose Cobo won the Tour of Spain on a Kestrel RT-1000. Kestrel\'s Superlight carbon layup gives the right blend of stiffness and compliance. The tapered head tube increases lateral stiffness in the front end for better steering precision. The BB30 bottom bracket makes for a stiff and efficient pedaling platform. Aerodynamic shaped stays, seat post, and seat tube, plus internal cable routing, let the wind slip over the bike. Geometry is aggressive, but with a bit more head-tube height and a shorter top tube for all-day comfort.
